There’s a few pretty special nights on this year’s calendar, but save for the Sedin number retirement, this might be the one people were most looking forward to. Tonight the Canucks honour the guy who was hands down their greatest free agent signing in franchise history with a spot on the ring of honour: Alexandre Burrows.
Now, personally I think the Canucks made a mistake having it on this night. They truly should have had it with the Chicago Blackhawks in town, and made Keith and the rest of those a-holes sit through that ceremony, but I digress.
The Canucks would do well to look at #14 for a little inspiration tonight. Burrows was a testament to hard work, going from an undrafted ECHL’er to playing on one of the best lines of the last 15 years. He was the unlikely answer to the question “Who can find that actually fits with Daniel and Henrik?” and it was apparent immediately.
